Featuring director Aldo Bellow, introduced by Metro Washington Council Executive Director Carlos Jimenez
Alexandria-based filmmaker Aldo Bellow will present excerpts from his award-winning film, leading a discussion on DACA, how DREAMers organized politically to obtain DACA, and its future in this administration. The film follows Juan Gomez, who came to the United States from Colombia when he was 2 and grew up speaking English. His parents were seeking to escape Colombia’s civil war, but their application to remain in the United States was denied. They stayed anyway. Bello uses Gomez’s story to explore the activist movement of young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers. “These young people who were not fully citizens were participating in the political process,” Bello told The Washington Post. “They’ve been doing it despite all the odds. It’s been quite incredible to watch.”
